The national meat industry leader, Smithfield Polska, was nominated in two categories and took the first place in contest for the “Leader of social responsibility” under this year’s Sustainable Economy Summit. The event gathers organizations and businesses that actively execute the sustainable development policy.
The award was granted to the “entity that demonstrates care for its employees, performs pro-social and charitable activities and distinguishes itself with high standards of business behaviors, with particular consideration of the righteousness and honesty.” The distinction was granted by a broad representation of contest jury composed of leaders of the business, science and economics.
“We are honored that we can collect the award as the leader of social responsibility. Sustainable development in our organization is a very wide subject covering many areas under the three main pillars, i.e. surroundings, business and people, established on a strong foundation represented by the ethical management. As the national leader we are aware of the opportunities and expectations that await us, therefore with even greater satisfaction we are observing the fact that our work is noticed and brings tangible results. – emphasizes the spokesman of Smithfield Polska, Łukasz Dominiak.
One of the key elements of this two-day event organized by the Executive Club was the conference during which representatives of the largest companies and organizations in Poland could share their knowledge and experience under a wide range of subjects. One of the lecturers during the panel entitled “friendly and socially responsible company” was the Director of Smithfield Polska PR & GA, Łukasz Dominiak.
“Sustainable development for our organization has many faces. These are our neighbors in areas where we conduct our business operations, local organizations and governments, our employees, clients and consumers, as well as the care for animals, which is the basis of activities performed under the meat industry. We assume that the sustainable development and responsible business policy are the worlds in which we cannot rest on our laurels. The expectations towards the leaders of our industry grow every day and it is our duty and goal to meet those expectations.” – adds Łukasz Dominiak.
Smithfield Polska apart from the award won in its category, was also nominated for an award as the “Leader of Ethics in Business”.
